He's one of my model stallions, and so are the others that will come later to this Realistic men-series of sims. Their personalities and stories are based on real events in my game!



His friends laugh that Darren's last name shouldn't be Walker, but Runner, for he's seen running shirtless along the coast line by the whole town more often than daily news... Well, what can you say about it, he simply loves to run for the fun. Shirtless. With an occasional naked dive to the freaking cold ocean.
...'cause hey, "clothes itch!" He'd be shirtless all the time if he could.




Darren wakes up everyday at sunrise, and goes for a run straight out from the bed. Why?
He just can't get enough of the salty wind against the face and through the hair. He is at peace, the world stands still as Walker runs.



Darren is one of those people who don't want to be confined by the rules of the system ("I didn't even like that collage anyway", "You didn't even like that car anyway","Why do I need a shirt anyway","That job was poorly paid anyway")
And if you'd ask his mother.. "THAT BOY OUGHT TO CUT HIS HAIR, PUT A SHIRT ON AND GET A REAL JOB!"

That's just the way he is. But he has become more responsible with age, as he realized his true dreams. And those dreams?
A home at the shoreline with thick foliage between neighbors for exhilarating clothing-free runs.
To achieve his dream, he's working as a wave spotter of a surfing magazine.

Darren picks his clothes by how easy they come off ("...'cause they itch!". But he can also clean himself up, which to him, means flattening the hair and putting on a shirt.

Sliders info!!

I've used Awesome mod's 3x slider increase, so if you don't have any slider multipliers in game, don't change the face or it'll reset and look oooogly!! Seriously, very ugly.
Please download all the sliders I've linked, or he will look very weird in game!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Meshes needed! This download requires one or more meshes to work properly. Please check the Description tab for information about the meshes needed, then download them below:
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Do you have the non-default skin tone enabling mod?
I'll put a default skin tone version of him so that he'll appear normal for those without the mod.

#28 Old 19th Sep 2010 at 8:46 PM
yes, I have the 5x5 layo file of the non-defaut skintone in my awesomemod.
But although he is black.
When will you upload the defaut skintone version?
I can't wait to play with him. He is ... well ...awesome.

Thanks a lot.
I hope I'm still awake when you upload him (German Time )
But I guess I will stay awake till then

EDIT:
He is not black anymore with the fixed version, but my game still crashes to the desktop.

What's with this link?
What do I have to download there?
Could it be that there's a missing file I need?

That is exactly what causes the crashing! I've put the fixed link up a long time ago, just download the Shymoo hair from there. It's the first link.

But I already have this hair.
There must be another reason why my game crashes.
He does not have any traits from ambitions does he?

He doesn't have ambitions traits, nor anything else from EPs.. Does he have the shorts like in these pictures in your game? That's the only mesh left to check that could cause crashing..
I'm sorry for all this trouble, it's just that lately few very important creators have made major changes to their pages and it has made things kind of hard for sim creators to make sims work all over again. :/

I have all downloads you linked.
But he looks very wierd in my game:
the hair wont show up on him and he has violet/blue makeup.
And every time I click on the tick the game crashes.
I don't know what this could be...

Hmm, that sounds very odd. I'll go through every piece of CC he has on tomorrow and check them for anything strange.

Ok thanks.
I only hope that your other "realistic men" sims you're going to upload will work on my PC
(my PC is sometimes very odd too )

They have far less CC and more safer CC so they should work without much effort, so rest assured. :D

I hope I'm not annoying, but did you find anything strange when you checked the CC?
I also checked everything in my game, but he doesn't even work without the other downloads.
That's so weird

I didn't find anything strange, I went through all the bits and pieces of him.. Are you sure he appears in your CAS just like in the pictures, with the same shorts, shoes, socks shirt and hair?
Test Subject
#40 Old 25th Sep 2010 at 9:50 AM
Yes, just like in the pictures expect he has no hair and he has blue/violet makeup.

Could you try to add a version without the custonm content?
I mean without the cloths and hair. So I could try, if he works with another hair or cloths.

I'm despaired... I don't know why he doesn't work.

Ah, okay! It's because the hair is converted by two different people so the other doesn't work.. Yes, I'll add a version with basegame hair
